    I Also Recommend:

    A. Conan Doyle would be pleased with this rendition of his work.

    Every episode of the Jeremy Brett series of Sherlock Holmes is a winner. The costumes and sets transport you to an era that lends itself to mystery yet is surprising in its timeliness regarding the human condition. The acting is intense but not the "campy" approach of some earlier versions, while Brett's interpretation of Holmes impresses as the most authentic yet. Those scenes where he seems to wilt if there is nothing on which his amazing mind can feed are almost unsettling. Dr. Watson is an able and worthy companion in this series, not a bumbling know-nothing but an astute observer and contributor to Holmes' adventures. Even after one's first viewing, each mystery can be revisited without hesitation because there's always some detail that was missed, some nuance that adds flavor to the story. These are highly recommended.

    Sinister Problems with Confounding Solutions

    As with other sets of this BBC/Grandada series Jeremy Brett once again displays his talent and flair for playing the electric character of Sherlock Holmes: and Edward Hardwicke simply owns the role of the conductive Dr. Watson. ACD's tales are vividly brought to life in this series, with great staging of scenes, and backdrops as well as the superb acting. I once belived that Basil Rathbone was the definitive Holmes even above Arthur Wonter, since viewing Mr. Brett's portrayals I can add my voice to many which believe that he is indeed the "definitive Sherlock Holmes"! Recommended highly. Elementary!

    Worth watching again and again.

    While I don't think this set compares to "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes", it is very enjoyable for fans of the series. In particular "The Problem of Thor Bridge" stands out, also the set has an interview with Jeremy Brett which fans will find interesting.
